This compact sedan is a head-turner. The 2021 Lexus IS 300 has the curb appeal of a sportscar with its bold front fascia design, narrow triple-beam headlight fixtures, wide hour-glass shaped grille, a body-colored front bumper, curvy sculpted hood, and rear spoiler-inspired detail above the trunk. The 2021 Lexus IS 300 comes in seven exterior color options (Matador Red Mica, Grecian Water, Eminent White Pearl, Atomic Silver, Caviar, Cloudburst Gray, and Iridium) and three interior choices (Black, Glazed Caramel, and Rioja Red). Business professionals, flashy singles, and those who want to make a statement entrance can do so easily in this car.
The 2021 Lexus IS 300 comes in two trims: the IS 300 RWD and the IS 300 AWD. All standard features are the same on both trims, but you can choose from either rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. The base model is a rear-wheel drive vehicle but the optional AWD is great if you're navigating inclement winter weather conditions, rural backroads, or other difficult conditions where extra grip would be helpful. Both drivetrains offer helpful driver assist features including forward collision mitigation, lane keeping, and adaptive cruise control.
If you opt for the IS 300 RWD trim, you'll get a spirited turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder engine cranking out 241 hp paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. If you choose the IS 300 AWD trim, you'll step up to a more powerful 3.5L V6 260-hp engine with a six-speed automatic transmission. This model manages zero to 60 in 6.1 seconds (according to the manufacturer), making it a nippy ride for highway commuters.
Both 2021 Lexus IS 300 trims come with the same suite of in-cabin technology features. Music lovers will enjoy the standard 10-speaker audio system and satellite radio capability as well as Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay® integration to stream your favorite tunes.
The 2021 Lexus IS 300 may only come in two trims, but you can easily find a used option that fits your lifestyle equipped with one of the additional packages or stand-alone features. For example, the Comfort Package includes a sunroof, heated steering wheel, and front seats with heating and ventilation. Those who road trip often or travel for work will appreciate those perks. Tech lovers and delivery drivers may look for a model with the Navigation Package, which upgrades the standard eight-inch touchscreen to a 10.3-inch option and adds on a navigation system.
